Pinmakers' Company apprenticeships

This company is defunct, and the only known surviving record of apprenticeships to the Pinmakers' are in the court minutes for 1691-1723 which constitutes Guildhall Library Ms 185. The provenance of this volume is unknown. It is not known when the Company ceased to function, but probably in the late 18th or early 19th century when Livery Companies generally were at a low ebb, having lost their old roles as trade guilds, and not yet having become charities.

This company has a much higher proportion of girls being apprenticed than normal, and the average social status of the fathers is low.

The records of 343 Pinmakers' apprenticeships have been abstracted.
